Baked Banana-Stuffed French Toast

Baked Banana-Stuffed French Toast (Adapted from Bon Appétit)

4 ripe bananas, peeled, each cut into 4 pieces
8 slices whole wheat bread
1/2 cup milk
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch fresh grated nutmeg
1 tablespoon butter
confectioners' sugar

Preheat oven to 350

Lay out 4 bread slices on your work surface - add 4 pieces of banana on each slice. Use a fork to gently mash the slices together on the bread. Top with remaining bread slices.

In a shallow dish, whisk together milk, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Working in batches, dip bread into the egg mixture, letting each soak for 45 seconds per side.

In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add assembled toasts to the skillet and cook until golden, about 2 minutes per side. Gently move them to a baking sheet - place in the oven and bake until warmed though, about 8 to 10 minutes. Dust with confectioners' sugar to serve.

Makes 4 servings.
